Take advantage of QMP’s Bespoke Product Design Service.
Although QMP offers a huge range of products you may have specific needs for a custom product to fit your work environment. These projects have an intricate design process – where ideas transform into workable solutions fitting precise specifications.

Our experienced sales team and hardworking production team can provide our customers with a full design service. This includes a site visit for our team to plan and measure the desired space for the installation. Additionally, our specialised production team will provide our customers with CAD drawings. Alongside rendered imaging, customers are able to see what their product will look like in situ.

Here is an example of a customized Pack Tek Workbench that was created for a valued distributor. We worked with the original sketch idea and used Solidworks design software to create a detailed model, technical drawings and final render for the customized product.

Design sketch

DESIGN SKETCHES

The first step is to obtain design ideas from our customers or draw initial sketches of the product. Our designers will then evaluate the requirements and develop concepts in harmony with our manufacturing standards.

Model design

MODEL DESIGN

Using Solidworks design software our team create 3D models of the product following the customer requirements and concept drawings. The project really starts to come to life at this stage of the process.

Bespoke Product Design Technical Drawings

TECHNICAL DRAWINGS

Next, our in-house design team will create detailed technical drawings of the project. This will include precise measurements and specifications to make sure that the finished product will match the customer’s requirements exactly.

Our specialist designers use softwares such as AutoCAD to design your Euroslide fit-out’s and how these will fit into specific workspaces when completed. Once the design process is completed, the project transitions to the next stage: Manufacturing.

QMP’s Euroslide Bespoke Fit Out – For Eurotech Racing

Our Euroslide product range features a large storage heavy duty tooling cabinets, mobile cabinets, workbenches and workshop trolleys. This range is perfect for any industrial, garage or workshop fit-out and offers the user maximum storage capacity, ideal for storing tooling or equipment.

  • Developing the concept in harmony with QMP manufacturing methods
  • Producing a drawing or sample for approval prior to production
